The kitchen as culinary proving ground. The foodie revolution is bringing people into the kitchen to learn how to make food from scratch. And some of the best instruction is video. YouTube and, of all things, Google+, are revolutionizing how we learn to cook.
Search for any cooking instruction on YouTube and you’re likely to find it. How do you make asparagus soufflé? That knowledge is always just a YouTube search away.
A lesser-known option is full-fledged live, interactive cooking schools on Google+. That service offers a video chat service called “Hangouts,” which enable up to 10 people to chat at the same time. Some chefs are using the services to teach live cooking classes, with all the students cooking along in their own kitchens. One example is ChefHangout.com.
When you’re learning to cook, it’s best to have an iPad mounted near eye level somewhere, rather than taking up precious countertop space.
